I was pleasantly surprised and pleased by all of the attention the State of the Union has received in the media but also the peripheral connections (humorous stories and apps). Here is a sampling:

Today was a personal work day but I listened to American Radio Works’ King’s Last March today in the car on NPR.
It was a great reminder of MLK’s radicalization during his last years, taking leftist stands on poverty and the Vietnam War. I know about it, not sure how many non history teachers know much about this. Take an hour and listen to this great story using King and other historical figures’ (Abernathy and Young among others) words to relive the era. Not sure his views would be as radical today post Vietnam and Watergate scandals. The program also details the evolution or I should say devolution of the LBJ-MLK relationship.
I had the opportunity to visit Ebenezer Baptist Church and the King Historical Sites in Atlanta a few years back with the Academic Team. It was a great experience and I highly recommend them if you get to Atlanta.
